If the spark plugs arent 'sparking' (assuming you've done something to see a visible arc with the boots off) you'll want to start troubleshooting ignition components before checking fuel etc. Also you'll want to make sure there is no oil in your spark wells. If there is no spark the first steps would be to check fuses, wiring, connections at the coils, make sure the cas is plugged up and you've got everything grounded.

coil pack and a/c compressor have same style electrical connector -- sounds like you may have 'em backwards. Check cam angle sensor connecotr as well -- no cam signal -- no sparky sparky.
